Hi there. A Cov fan here. Tom Kessell played for Coventry on loan for a couple of months just before Christmas as cover for our two scrum halves who were out for some time with injuries. Tom did really well for us and the fans really liked him. I was just wondering whether he has featured for the first team since his return and how you guys rate him.

Tom always gives us 100%, nice quick pass, but imho it’s his defense that is missing to make it in premiership and with young Alex Mitchell coming through, Tom is now 4th choice 9, with the other 3 all very good players and Mitchell may become the best 9 we have had since Dawson.

So no Titchy he hasn’t played at all. Think he was on the bench for a Wanderers game at some point

Yea, I think Tom will be looking for a move as he hasnt had much of a look in for quite a while now. He’s stuck behind a South African international, another south african who’s been the in form incumbent and Alex Mitchell (20), who to me looks like Lee Dickson 2.0 but also getting limited game time which worries me!

Tommy V tweeted the other day that Tom Kessell had 'pretty much left now'. But then a bunch of players jumped on saying that he hadn't.

I don't think he'll be about for much longer though, zero game time. A shame, I liked him but a competitive position.

Great chap too, always happy to chat with supporters. He came to us as a real prospect but has a bit of a congested path ahead of him currently! I hope he stays but wouldn’t blame him to be looking about if he is...
